Been to 3 of them, but have been to a lot of other places that I've enjoyed more.  I think it's all very personal and also depends on the time of year and weather.

been to some of them, Madrid is a highlight, but Lake Garda in Italy is stunning, we love it, loads to see and do and a good base to explore further afield

Was actually in Iceland five years ago today, and it was cold, wet and miserable, so I agree with the time of year and weather.  Come to think of it, Shetland was similar last time I was there, but that wasn't by choice, just a fuel and water stop for the minehunter I was serving on at the time.  Madrid is OK but it is far from my favourite capital city, and low down on my list of Spanish cities.  Bari and Puglia is a part of Italy I'd like to see.

Puglia is beautiful, especially in the spring.  Madrid I can do without, it's either too hot or too cold.  There are some stunning places in Hungary and Austria that I would hate to become too touristy as it would spoil their charm.  I had a very memorable week in Southern Ireland when it was wall to wall sunshine each day, most unexpected, and hardly a problem with the language either.

Tallinn is rather good. The old town is stunning.

Did Madrid about 10 years ago in May.

Loved it.

Easily spend a week there.

Real Madrid's ground is impressive and chocabloc on a match day.

Funniest thing was a street market where one stall was selling single shoes.

Must be a demand for it, but had nothing any good for somebody entering an arse kicking competition.

I do fancy Iceland at some point.

Been to Madrid a few times always on business, the most eventful was in April nine years ago, one night stopover no luggage. Ended up staying for a week because of the Icelandic volcano eruption! Painful memories of travelling daily to and from airport from centre of Madrid trying to secure flight home. Rained the first night when I was trying to find a hotel soaking the only clothes I had with me.

Didn't really enjoy the city until the last day once my flight home was secured.

Budapest is a stunning city to visit. Went last year and returning in August because we didn't get to see half the attractions available.

If you get a chance take in the zoo, it's amazing, I don't usually like zoos, but the architecture is brilliant.  The museums are world class in Budapest, but for a real treat go to the Herend Porcelain factory.

You'll need deep pockets to buy anything, but the artists there are incredible.
